We had an evening meal here 17th July. The staff were very friendly,the food ( I had the ravioli and my husband had the penne pollo pesto) was excellent. The service was courteous and efficient. Altogether a great experience.

When we saw 'Fresh lobster', we knew we had to come as we were deprived of seafood during our stay in the UK. The service was great (wished I got their names!) and the waitress was spot on with the recommendations - some of them...More

Food was delicious, although I thought it was a little pricey. Having said that, it is literally based off the Royal Mile, so maybe everything is a little more expensive. I had the lasagne, which was really good, although I was surprised it didn't come...More

Run by lovely people, amazing service. They thought we waited a long time so gave us a free cocktail and beer. A lovely touch. We will definitely return.

Visited on a busy Tuesday lunchtime. Staff were very well informed, friendly and welcoming, and service was speedy. My gluten free pasta was hands down the best I've had, it tasted so fresh I had to ask was it definitely GF. My other half loved...More

I visited Gordon's, alone, after a Rabbie's day tour. I enjoyed the calamari followed by spicy penne pasta with an Italian coffee to finish. The service was attentive but unintrusive. It's a great spot on the Royal Mile to people watch whilst enjoying a delicious...More

Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its
labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests
this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly
visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers
that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the
place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as
the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal
Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the
